PACCOR extends product shelf life at ROSUPAK 2011

04.05.2011
PACCOR, a European-based manufacturer, has launched a new barrier packaging solution, which is made up of multi-layer structures.

Designed to block humidity and oxygen, this solution helps to extend the preservation of products by up to 24 months, while food products packaged in this way retain the highest level of quality. PACCOR will unveil this innovation at the ROSUPAK trade show, which will take place in Moscow (Russia) from 14 to 18 June 2011.

The PACCOR Group has developed a multi-layer plastic-barrier sheet intended to package food products that do not require cool storage for preservation. The shelf life of products packaged with this coextruded sheet can be extended by as much as two years. PACCOR will present its novel packaging solution at the ROSUPAK trade fair, in Moscow, in mid-June.

PACCOR offers four basic reel structures, which are intended for FFS (Form/Fill/Seal) machines. The PS/Evoh/PE structure is intended for the packaging of stewed fruit, fresh fruit, cold cuts and desserts, while the PP/Evoh/PP structure, which is microwavable and sterilizable, is designed for the packaging of baby food, pre-prepared food and pet food. The PS/PE structure is suitable for cheese, fish and for industrial applications, and the PS/Evoh/PS form is designed for the packing of fresh products.

As each food company has its own specific requirements, PACCOR also manufactures made-to-measure sheets in accordance with its customers’ specific requirements and in order to achieve a perfect match with their packaging machines.

In order to increase barrier properties, PACCOR is also able to design a sheet made up of nine different layers, incorporating an added barrier to protect the packaged product from light. The thickness of each layer and its formulation can be adapted upon request. Sheets can also be produced in a two-colour version, with white on the inside and a colour on the outside: this is designed to meet the growing demand from companies to make packaging relevant from a marketing standpoint.

In terms of equipment, PACCOR has a fleet of high-quality modern machines, which are fitted with the latest technology, such as autoflex, and an online thickness-measurement tool. Thanks to its machines, PACCOR can provide a constant and accurate spread of the master layers (EVOH, PE and bonding agents).

Im Focus: Breaking: the first light from two neutron stars merging

Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.

Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...

Im Focus: Cold molecules on collision course

Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.

How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...

Im Focus: Shrinking the proton again!

Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.

It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...

Im Focus: New nanomaterial can extract hydrogen fuel from seawater

Hybrid material converts more sunlight and can weather seawater's harsh conditions

It's possible to produce hydrogen to power fuel cells by extracting the gas from seawater, but the electricity required to do it makes the process costly. UCF...
